HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Several horses are up for adoption by the state’s Department of Agriculture.

The horses are being made available to responsible individuals or organizations.

Some of the horses were removed from their owners due to neglect or abuse.

They are all up to date with their shots, and cleared to move to new homes.

Those who adopt are encouraged to make a donation and will have to agree to a background check and inspection of where the horses will be housed prior to being approved.
